As recommended by the UK Government, the IT Health Check will involve vulnerability scanning and manual analysis of your internal network. Depending upon your organisation’s systems it should include:
•Desktop and server build and configuration, and network management security.
•Patching at operating system, application and firmware level.
•Configuration of remote access solutions (including solutions for managed devices and BYOD).
•Build and Configuration of laptops and other mobile devices such as phones and tablets used for remote access.
•Internal security gateway configuration (including any PSN gateway)
•Wireless network configuration
In addition, we also advocate that the check cover:
•A desktop review of strategy and key policy / process documentation
•A desktop review of organisational compliance with Professional or Regulatory body’s standards.
